Hi Sol - I'm curious to know how much Katia charged for hair and makeup. She was referred to me by my photographer, but when I asked for pricing, she quoted me $500 for both hair and makeup!! That doesn't even include trial!!

Wow this is an old post, but I figured I'd bring it back to life due to the large number of requests we have had lately about our own wedding and from other brides looking for non-resort spots.


Sol provided some great info here, so maybe this can help someone who is doing some searching for the perfect spot!

Hi Sol,


I know this post is a bit old, but I have been scouring for recommendations on Catering and WC.  I, too, am getting married at the Secret Jewel in April!!!  I *thought* I had a caterer picked out, but am having huggge second thoughts.  I spoke with Gisela today and she seems great.  I am nervous about booking someone that I have never tasted their food or seen what they can do.  How did you decide on Easy Gourmet over other caterers?  I know that you are a photographer in the area, so must see allll kinds of vendors!  Would love a 'local' opinion who knows the area and has been a bride themselves!  Especially since I will be at the same venue that you chose~!  Any tips about Spectacular events would be amazing, as well!


Thanks so much!

Please watch my slideshow to get a better picture of what I'm describing in this post: Matt and Sol wedding pics

Here are my vendor recommendations, I use this people to help me make my day perfect:

Dress & Accessories : My dress was made by David Salomon, It tourned out as I have visualized it, I wanted something according to the location, very comfortable and unique, with red on it., he created this dress using red coral, when I saw it, I was so excited!!! DAVID SALOMON

He recommended a make up and hair artist, Katia Monforte (sorry no website) her phone in Cancun is: 998 654 736.

I found a girl online that creates unique designs, she made me my bare food sandals, and a beautiful neckless, bracelet, earrings and the neckless Matt used. On her website she has unique pieces and she can also make anything you have in mind.
Bienvenidos a Joyeria de autor Xochitl Rivera Diseñadora

Location: Secret Jewel Suites & VillasThis wonderful location is owned by the family Diamant, Ilse : secretjewelcelebrations@gmail.com was there at everysecond helping us with everything., she get's a+A

This location has 3 villas that are available for rent, but all our family & friends stayed in Playa del Carmen, so we rented only the site for the day. This ended to be an amazing "Off the beaten Path" location, it has a palapa, a garden and a palm groove sandy area (where we had our reception) the beach is rocky, giving the place an exotic view...

Cator: Easy Gourmet, Banquetes en Cancun y Riviera Maya, Eventos, Catering, Bodas easygourmet.com.mx, Gisela became not only my cator, but my friend, she has the kind of personality willing to help with anything., later I learned that she has a degree on psychology, and being a stressed bride as I was the weeks prior the wedding, it was a blessing having her around.
Food was delicious, and service beyond excellent.

Event Decoration: direccion@spectacular-events.com Roberto Caamal,
Welcome to Spectacular Events ::.. was the second biggest blessing (only second because Gisela put me in touch with him) He is an Artist, I absolutely adore what he created, he got my idea and colors, and he put together a wonderful whole thing., he is super fun to work with. He made my bouquet too., table setting & center pieces, lighting, music stage, dancing floor, ceremony setting… everything!!!! …. He is AMAZING!!!

Wedding Coordinator: Yazmin de la mora Yazmin De La Mora - Weddings & Cateringyazmin@yazmindelamora.com , I think I was a little control freak (I didnâ€t think that of my self before.. haha…), and I found my own vendors for almost everything; but Yazmin got the Chaman and Mayan Dancers for the ceremony. She also helped me with final details, and on wedding day she and her husband were great. I lost a button on my dress and she fixed it in a second., It's always great to have someone around to help with anything.

Transportation: I found this company, Great service, Great price, I use them the days before the wedding and on wedding day; I keep using them now on my TTD sessions were we go on adventure., thereâ€s no website, but this is the email of the owner: sinaltours@hotmail.com

Music: This was on Top of my list, I needed good music, and I found Balance, they are 8 musicians, play anykind of music, English & Spanish, they kept everybody dancing for 4 hours! Even in the breaks, the DJ selections were great.. I highly recommend them: Balance la Banda - Downloads

Mariachis To end the wedding we hired a mariachi band: Alma.de.mexico@hotmail.com

AND, I almost forget!!! I also found another great band, that we use to play before the ceremony, for my walking down the aisle and during cocktail hour, this guys are full of energy and are true musicians., I didn't get them for reception as I wanted a bigger more structured band, but they were great for the couple hours they play: Victor Espinoza : vicmusici_77710@yahoo.com

OK, I think this is It!!!... finally.... have fun future brides!!! smile03.gif
